Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 3 Review

Five episodes were provided for review.

When Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell first worked together on The Evil Dead, no one could have anticipated that this 1981 splatter-fest would snowball into not only a cult classic but one of the pillars of modern horror cinema. For decades after the trilogy’s final installment in 1992’s Army of Darkness, fans clamored for more of Campbell’s buffoonish badass Ashley J. Williams. After Raimi and Campbell helped shepherd director Fede Alvarez’s 2013 reboot/remake, hopes for more of their original vision seemed bleak. Then Ash vs. Evil Dead happened.

Since 2015, Campbell has reprised his titular role for the Starz series, giving an older but decidedly not wiser Ash a whole mess of gory shenanigans to get into. Now returning for season 3, the series complicates matters further, introducing a teenage daughter (Arielle Carver-o’Neill) Ash has never met and forcing him to become the reluctant hero once again.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 3 Includes Biggest Deadite of All Time

Bruce Campbell says Ash will be battling the biggest Deadite of all time in Ash vs. Evil Dead season 3. Since the beginning, anyone even faintly familiar with director Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead trilogy or the first two seasons of the subsequent Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead well know that the bane of Ash Williams’ existence are the Deadites, a particularly nasty brand of humans or life-forces possessed by Kandarian demons. Ash (Campbell), of course, thought he’d vanquished evil completely by the conclusion of the third Evil Dead movie Army of Darkness, but following a night of partying 23 years later, he reawakened the Deadites after irresponsibly citing incantations from the Necronomicon, aka The Book of the Dead.

New Fan Edit Condenses The Entire Evil Dead Trilogy Into A 72 Minute Ballet Of Gore

With Ash vs. Evil Dead due to return to Starz in February, it feels like a fine time to take stock of The Evil Dead franchise. Though it now encompasses a TV show, a couple of video games, various comic book crossovers, a pretty good remake and a bunch of other multimedia projects, the roots of the franchise lie in Sam Raimi’s 1981 classic – the original ‘video nasty.’

Shot on a shoe-string budget and crammed full of dynamic camerawork and neat gore effects, the film was such a hit that it spawned two bigger budget sequels in the form of Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. Now, perhaps to amuse himself or to cater for those without much free time, Vimeo user Jorge Torres-Torres has recut the entire trilogy into Evil Dead Revision, which he describes as “a 72 minute, black & white ballet of gore.”

Constantin Film looking to launch Danger Girl movie and TV franchise

THR is reporting that Constantin Film is looking to bring the cult comic book series Danger Girl to the screen, having snapped up the rights to the series from creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell.

Constantin will team up with Jeremy Bolt’s Bolt Pictures and Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films to launch a potential film and TV franchise with female empowerment as the buzzword.

Danger Girl is the perfect opportunity to create a team of grounded, relatable and dangerous young female characters but with humor and spectacular action,” said Bolt.

Danger Girl launched in 1998 through Wildstorm, and followed the adventures of Abbey Chase, who is recruited into Danger Girl Freelance Operations Limited, a secret spy organisation who fights against the neo-Nazi group known as the Hammer Empire along with various other global threats.

The original Danger Girl miniseries spawned a host of further limited series and one-shots,

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Manster (1959)

I love wordplay, and portmanteaus are my favourite. Come on over and I’ll tell you about The Manster (1959), part man, part monster, all good B movie madness. Two-headed Americans abroad in Japan is a very specific sub-genre, and underappreciated at that.

Originally released in Japan in July but not released stateside until March of ’62, United Artist Japan’s production was filmed there, and they spared every expense by using the same cardboard sets, flimsy, sparse labs and restaged hotel rooms as their American counterparts. (Papier mache volcano included.) But the mix of Japanese, British, and American actors gives The Manster (Aka The Split) a distinct flavor beyond the two pronged noggin. Oh, and the eyeball in the shoulder. Have I mentioned the caged sister with the melting face?

Our film opens on that mountainside by that gurgling volcano at the secret lab of Dr. Robert Suzuki (Tetsu NakamuraThe Last Dinosaur

Watch Bruce Campbell Tame Snakes in Rare 1984 TV Commercial

Watch Bruce Campbell Tame Snakes in Rare 1984 TV Commercial
When The Evil Dead was released in 1981, it helped launched the careers of star Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, but long before that club hit, the actor and star made a slew of short films with their high school friends Scott Spiegel and Bill Ward. These shorts were showcased with a new DVD set released in August called Super 8 Shorts, with a second volume just now being released. Along with 11 new short films, many of which have never been publicly released before, this set also features some of Bruce Campbell's early TV commercials, including one you can see below for a Michigan radio station from 1984, three years after the first Evil Dead movie. Here's a description of these DVD sets below, outlining some of the history behind these filmmakers.

Movie Review – Live-Evil (2015)

Live-Evil, 2015.

Directed by Ari Kirshenbaum.

Starring Vladimir Kulich, Charlene Amoia, Vincent M. Ward, Tony Todd, J. Richey Nash, and Karen Wheeling Reynolds

Synopsis:

Supernatural forces are locked into a college town police force’s basement jail. The sheriff and his deputies are subjected to psychic attacks, preying on the fears of the loyal officers and only those with the strongest wills can survive.

It’s that time again campers. The time of year when production companies with any horror films on their slate, push out a release. As it is, Live-Evil has actually been hovering around for a couple of years now but finally has a UK release.

I enjoy a quirky horror film. A film which attempts to do something different. Subvert the genre perhaps or have a little fun. Earlier this year I saw Dolph Lundgren’s enjoyable horror comedy, Don’t Kill It. It felt like a

Bruce Campbell Promises Jaw-Dropping Third Season Of Ash Vs. Evil Dead

For two years on the trot, Ash Vs. Evil Dead laid claim to Starz’s Halloween slate, serving up a delightfully over-the-top dish of blood, guts, and chainsaw-wielding maniacs.

With season 3, though, the network has shuffled its deck in such a way that the horror-comedy series, one rustled up by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, and Tom Spezialy, has now relocated to winter – February 25th, 2018, to be specific – for its third year on the airwaves. Exactly how Ash Vs. Evil Dead will fare in this new slot is up for question, but with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) now being championed as a “humanity-saving hometown hero,” we imagine Deadites across the globe will be tuning in come February.

Indeed, as part of the show’s presence at New York Comic Con this past weekend, Campbell told those in attendance that season 3 will be “really, really different” – so different, in fact, that we

Has Bruce Campbell’s Ash Hung Up His Chainsaw For Good?

Bruce Campbell will always be associated with Ash Williams from The Evil Dead. From the series’ splattered beginnings in the 1980s through to the bizarre yet awesome medieval spoof The Army of Darkness, through various spinoff videogames and, most recently, to the sleeper hit Ash vs. Evil Dead. There’s just something about his goofy, matinee idol looks and famously prominent chin that makes him the perfect foil for the deadite hordes.

But now, if we’re reading this interview that Campbell did with Syfy Wire right, Ash might be gone for good. When the outlet asked him a question beginning with, “When you hang up that chainsaw for the last time and Ash is gone, you’re moving on…” Campbell interrupted them with, “Who says I haven’t?”

When pressed on this, he added, “We finished season three of Ash vs Evil Dead. At the end of that season,

Day Of The Dead (1985) and Darkman Deluxe Vinyl Score Re-Issues from Waxwork Records

  • DailyDead
Just like Dr. Logan, Waxwork Records has been keeping busy with new vinyl horror score releases this year, and now they're resurrecting two favorites as re-issues with a slightly new look: George A. Romero's Day of the Dead and Sam Raimi's Darkman:

Press Release: Waxwork Records is beyond thrilled to present George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead Original Motion Picture Score on deluxe double vinyl. Originally released by Waxwork in 2013 and 2014, and selling out almost immediately, the score to George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead by composer John Harrison (Creepshow, Tales From The Dark Side) is 100% synth driven, dark, and blends elements of tropical compositions and atonal, droning electronic cues.

In 2013, Waxwork and composer John Harrison unearthed the original, lost 1985 master tapes containing the complete Day Of The Dead film score from the attic of a recording studio in Pittsburgh, Pa. After painstakingly restoring,
